the two minnesotans continues. tim pawlenty went after michele bachmann. >> there's a big difference in talking about things and getting them done. >> this is the third day in a row where we have seen tim pawlenty heat up in his rhetoric against michele bachmann. it's clearly trying to set up the two of them as they go mono on mono for this straw poll. what is interesting, there was a republican debate before the straw poll that takes place in iowa. so instead of everyone going after mitt romney, it's clear that there's going to be a little mini debate going on. all of that in the shadow of what is going on with rick perry and chris christie showing up. lots to go through. we're going to get to that later in the show. let's get to the big story. there's one week left to raise the debt ceiling. two sides feel like they are farther apart than ever. serving on the budget committee, senator, let's start with what is on the table. can you support harry reid's plan as it stands right now in the united states senate? >> no. but i don't think that we're that far apart, chuck. if you take the
." big developments expected on the debt ceiling debate. john boehner hopes to unveil a new deal by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. mike viqueira has more. good sunday morning, mike. >> reporter: well, good morning to you. crunch time in washington after talks in the white house blew up between republicans and president friday night. congressional leaders and staff have been scrambling to find a way out of the mounting crisis and of course, there are nine days to go before the first possible default in u.s. financial history and government history. leaders hope to announce at least later today the framework for an agreement. and they're doing that in part to soothe worldwide market jitters that many of the markets open late today eastern time around the world for monday openings and there's a great deal of concern an adverse effect. john boehner has a proposal on the table. leaders huddled last night to look at it. call for $1 trillion in cuts but dealing with major questions, the most volatile questions that we've seen, including cuts and changes to social security and medicare, and what t
is a big part of the reason why. before i served in congress, i ran a small business in ohio. i was amazed at;h$ow different washington, d.c. operated than every other business in america, where most american businesses make the hard choices of paying their bills and living within their means, in washington, more spending and more debt is business as usual. i've got news for washington, those days are over. president obama came to congress in january and requested business as usual. he had another routine increase in the national debt, but we in the house said not so fast. he was a president asking for the largest debt increase in history on the heels of the largest spending increase in history. here's what we got from that massive spending binge, a new health care bill most americans didn't ask for, a new spending bill that's more useful for producing material for late night comedians than jobs, and a debt that sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours. the united states cannot default on its debt limitations. what we told the president in january was this, the american
, to where we are now, which is how big a deficit reduction package should accompany it? >> well, as i think the speaker of the house is discovering tonight and is the reality that we all live with here in washington, lawrence, which is that this is a divided government. a two-party system. nobody gets entirely what he or she wants. and, yes, if we had been doing this in the normal way, as has been historically done, there would have been a clean debt ceiling vote, which traditionally has been an unpleasant vote often for members of congress, but routine and noncontroversial and certainly not tied to any kind of deficit reduction package or any other measure for that matter. what happened is that the speaker of the house made clear that -- and republicans in general that they were linking the willingness to raise the debt ceiling to significant deficit reduction. as you know, for a long time, we rejected the link. but because we believe we need to reduce our deficits and get our debt under control. we also worked concurrently as we move through the spring and into the summer on proposals to
, the smaller the people. and right now we have a government so big and so expensive it is zapping the drive out of our people and keeping our economy from running at full capacity. the solution to this crisis is not complicated. if you are spending more than you are taking in, you need to spend less of it. there's no symptom of government more menacing than our debt. break its grip and we begin to liberate our economy and our future. we're up to the task. and i hope president obama will join us in this work. god blets you and your family and god bless the united states of america. >> that was speaker of the house john boehner responding to the speak address of the president of the united states. called a stalemate over the debt ceiling negotiations. speaker boehnor said there was no stalemate, making the case that there was no stalemate simply because he has been able to pass some bills in the house of representatives only that address this with absolutely no possibility of passing that legislation through the united states senate. ignoring the stalemate, he ignored many of the specifics raised
, as republicans, as the new majority in this house. >> failing on the big things is something they choose to do. >> we emplore the other side to get serious. >> when is the house going to stop the charade? >> the gang of six is still trying to lead. >> it's a far cry from the paul ryan budget. >> we thought this was the gang of six, dead and buried. >> now the gang of six is a gang of seven. >> two parts, there's always a second act. >> gotten rave reviews from a lot of folks. frlgs colleagues really liked it. >> when does somebody have to say uncle? >> murdoch is also not taking the blame. >> insisting that he is not to blame. >> london calling. >> tried to pass the buck today. >> just doesn't really stack up. >> the 80-year-old also appeared confused. >> he said yes, i'm in charge of this company. >> somebody jumped over to, i believe, get to rupert murdoch. >> somebody with a pie, wendi murdoch leaped past her husband. >> she's feisty, i've met her. >> if i remember correctly, that looks like a spike. >> you can always say with glitter. >> as the deadline for raising the debt ceiling grows c
the will of the house the go forward? >> indeed. that is one of the big m.o.s when he came into the house, and said so much hot air in the place, and let the people's voice be heard and it is the people's house, and they would be ultimately be heard, and he realizes the stakes on the debate of the debt, and if this is not out of the house of representatives, they have nowhere to go as a house of conference and it reflects poorly on his leadership to show that he cannot stop the influence of some of the most far right members of party who tried to undercut him and undercut members of defense by soliciting outside interest groups to get them to vote against the bay no bioehner bil. it is the march of the 216. >> and luke, loud mouth, thank you for the moment. can i come to the silver fox, mike viqueira. >> he is the silver fox. >> and you were at the press conference with jay carney and how was tlit? >> well, a 20th figure once said, we are seeing politics is the most gruesome effect. and this is sausage making up here. this thing is not going to be resolved today or tomorrow or this weekend and the two
up with some kind of short-term extension, no big deal, and then everybody's going to blame everybody else for the fact we didn't get anything done. you talk about the gang of six, there's a gang of 300 million out there, the american people, who are completely fed up with this. they elect representatives to take care of housekeeping chores, and this is a grand housekeeping chore, and they are failing at the process of doing it. >> howard, i'm wondering, does the same thing go for -- it is my sense it does. boehnor is actually not the most disappointed guy in the capitol, he knew he was putting together something that wasn't real and that cbo shooting it down is not some big shock to him, that he was just putting together to claim he was putting something together. >> that's true too. maybe there was a smidgen of sincerity there and knowing him and having covered him, but yeah, they both want to be able to say after we all go off the edge of a cliff that it was the other person's fault, and that's exactly the situation we're in right now, and it's a dangerous and unsettling one, begin
presidential candidates have money problems. >> and big money, big problems? gop fundraisers staying on the sidelines. >> mitt romney, 70% maxed out contributions. >> gingrich's campaign is $1 million in debt. >> and the arrests continue as the british police close in on rupert murdoch's media empire scandal. >> every day we're seeing more inconceivable things happen. >> in the last 24 hours, two high-level resignations. >> head of scotland yard resigned yesterday. >> rebekah brooks was released on jail. >> rupert murdoch is said to face the scandal head-on tomorrow. >> now we move to david cameron. >> is cutting short a trip today to south africa. >> order. when are they going to do the decent thing and resign? >> congress now has 15 days to pass a bill to raise the debt ceiling before the united states government goes into a catastrophic default on august 2nd. today harry reid announced the senate will meet every day until the debt ceiling is raised. yesterday, david rogers of politico discovered and reported that house speaker john boehner and eric cantor held a secret meeting wit
's a really big misunderstanding about folks like myself that got elected in 2010. sure, i sprang from the tea party, but what the tea party is all about is we love this country. we realize we're bankrupting, and the only guarantee i made during the election is i would not vote -- i would never vote with my re-election might not. that's what i i came here for. i came here to actually fix the problem. that's a little different. the long-term politicians here aren't used to that type of commitment to saving our country. that's really the difference here, and until the political class here understands that, they're going to continue to misunderstand what the tea party is all about. not crazy. we're patriots. we love this country. we don't want to see it go bankrupt. >> senator ron johnson. good to have you on with us. >> thanks for having me on. >> the man who confessed to slaughtering at least 93 people in norway has been arraigned in court this morning. take a look. this is the photo just released, showing anders breivik leaving court. the judge ordered the court doors to be closed so he wouldn
could save hundreds! yeah, that'll certainly stick with me. we'll take it. go, big money! i mean, go. it's your break, honey. same coverage, more savings. now, that's progressive. call or click today. >>> rupert murdoch's son james is now being accused of not telling the truth during a key part of his testimony to parliament tuesday. during tuesday's testimony, james murdoch said he was never told about a vital email suggesting reporter neville thur elback was involved in phone hacking. but today, collin miler, editor of "news of the world" just before it shut down and tom crone, the paper's former head of legal affairs, said they had told murdoch of the email which included transcripts of hacked voicemails. in a joint statement, they said -- >>> news corp. then issued this statement. >>> news corp. then issued this statement. james murdoch stands by his testimony to the select committee. the committee chairman may ask james murdoch to appear again before parliament to clear up that matter. this cartoon appeared in today's edition of murdoch's british newspaper "the times," under the wor
of that. >> and big surprise, a very, very sharp contradiction in james murdoch's testimony plays out today. and the murdoch response was basically no response at all. >> right. you know, the interesting character to watch there is tom crone, the lawyer. he's made clear that he's not going to be the fall guy here. and if they -- if the murdochs and news corp. try to lay everything on him, because he was the chief lawyer for "news of the world," he's not going to sit idly by. so if the brits are looking for a john dean character in all this, i would think that tom crone is the guy to watch, and the statement today contradicting james murdoch's testimony about that e-mail is the first sign that he may in fact be willing to go there. >> nbc news national investigative correspondent michael isikoff. thank you for joining me tonight, michael. >> thank you, lawrence. >>> coming up, virginia governor bob mcdonald flip-flops on the debt ceiling, even though he never actually understood what the debt ceiling was in the first place. that's in tonight's "rewrite." >>> and later, one of our favor
and a beautiful summer. we ought to get outside and debate the big picture, what kind of country we want to live in, what kind of country we want this to be. that's why i like politics, roosevelt, reagan, kennedy, the stuff even young kids like me cared about. that's "hardball," thanks for being with us. "the last word with lawrence o'donnell" starts right now. >> joel burns is with us tonight to respond to michele bachmann's statement on bullying. but bullying isn't the only danger the tea party just doesn't understand. >> first of all, you don't look happy on the front page of "the new york times." >> first, speaker of the house john boehner, it doesn't get better. >> the speaker of the house is being whip sawed today between his tea party caucus. >> this is the moment of the boehner speakership. >> the plan is officially a flop. >> the budget office downgrading the revenue projections. >> told gop lawmakers to get their "blank" in line. >> get their behind in line, thomas. >> he was really cracking the whip. >> it says boehner's grip on his caucus is put to test in standoff. >> the world's sa
a big solution, a grand solution, the president offered that, it was clear that he could have gotten that deal, in my opinion. the first time that he walked away from the deal, and i'm absolutely convinced, having talked to the president, he could have gotten a deal the second time he walked away. the problem is i think his party wants to play politics, his party irresponsibly wants to hold hostage the credit of the united states and every american's credit to politics. hopefully mr. boehnorรง will return to his original concept that we ought to have a long-term, get us out of the election era, and what he's always said he wants is stability to businesses can count on our policies. well, he's suggested something absolutely the opposite of what he said is good policy. >> congressman hoyer, i appreciate your semantic correction of what i said about the democrats -- >> schumer said that. >> my point about it, though, is that -- and i think senator schumer's point can also be taken is we have a history here now, going back the last few decades, that the party of responsibility, the part
picture, the big focus of it, we have studies indicating 85% of lgbt students surveyed nationally say they have been bullied at school. this is, by no means, individualized to particular school districts. >> absolutely. again, it is a nationwide problem, but there are cultures created within these school districts about how to deal with it, and you find in areas either in states or school districts where the -- they have policies prohibiting this type of activity of bullying and of prohibiting any kind of discussion about homosexuality. the suicide rates amongst lgbt teens are much lower. that's something proved out in a variety of places, the fact it's higher in anoka-hennepin point to problems there. >> joel burns, thank you for returning to "the last word" tonight. where you made your network television today buh and in the process won a glad award. thanks for joining us again. >> i'm happy to be here and i hope the congresswoman ends her silence soon. >> thank you, joel. thank you. you can have the last word
